IMMEDIATE CARE - PROTECTING AGAINST CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Falls Avenue Immediate Care (FAIC) is closely monitoring the latest coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our clinical leadership has implemented protocols consistent with the CDC guidelines to ensure the quality and safety of the care provided to our patients.
Falls Avenue Immediate Care Visitor Policy
For the safety of our patients and team, we are limiting visitors at this time. When practical, visitors should wait in their car. Families may have children in the patient's room, but if another adult is present, it is preferred that additional family members wait in the car if not receiving care. Thank you for helping us provide additional protection for you and your family.
Is Falls Avenue Immediate Care staying open?
Yes. Our central role in this pandemic is to take care of as many people that we can so that hospitals can focus on COVID-19 cases, especially those with critical complications.
If you visit FAIC and are experiencing a fever of 100.4 or greater, a cough, or shortness of breath, please ask for a mask immediately at the front desk.
